Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Although the mintage for the 1858-D half eagle is less than half the mintage of the 1858-C, the coins are currently of similar rarity. A fairly large number of examples have been offered at auction during the last two decades. The reason many of these scarce coins have shown up in the last decade is the number of great collections that have entered the marketplace—names such as Bass, Pittman, Milas and others come to mind. The appearance of these coins on the market can sometimes give a false impression of availability. Most of these coins are sold into strong hands and are not seen again for years. The majority of available 1858-D half eagles grade Extremely Fine or About Uncirculated. Mint State coins are rare, with the finest known example being the single NGC MS 65 coin that was part of the great Duke’s Creek Collection of Dahlonega gold.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
